Treating Open Wounds with ACV

French translation


We had a horse that got hooked in the shoulder by a bull. It was a deep puncture wound.

Washing it every day and applying the following healed it with no scarring.

Mix apple cider vinegar with black pepper to make a paste.
Apply to the wound and wrap if possible (not necessary).
Will heal quickly without scar tissue or proud flesh.

This also works for any cut or abrasion.

Does this work just topically?

ACV & black pepper for deep/open wound
by: SB 4 horse mom

I've used this to treat scrapes to missing muscle!

Apply to deep wounds also, it helps the tissue granulate
and draws it back together. Don't let heal a bit first, hose
deep wounds until they bleed just a little then apply.

Do daily until healed. It also keeps flies off wound!!

Question about the ACV and black pepper combination for proud flesh
by: Anonymous

WOW - this is an awesome idea and combination to keep on hand in the emergency kit.

Question though, did you apply the combination immediately to the wound or let it heal a little first? I wondered about it burning an open wound. Please advise.

Thanks, Mom47horses
